Kwamé

Biography

As opposed to many ’90s rappers, Kwamé designed a good-natured, funny, relatively intellectual persona for himself and is among the few rappers to train on a live band (A FRESH Starting) both live and in the studio. Blessed Kwamé Holland, he was raised in NY City’s jazz picture, receiving his initial group of drums from Lionel Hampton and getting together with Stevie Question as a kid. Kwamé’s 1989 debut, Kwamé the Son Genius: Having a New Starting, was made by Hurby “Luv Insect” Azor (Salt-N-Pepa) and showcased his mixture of old-school and Daisy Age group designs. The follow-up, EACH DAY in the life span: A Pokadelick Experience, was an idea album about just what the name said: a typical day time in Kwamé’s existence as a higher schooler. 1991’s Nastee wasn’t as effective as his two earlier produces, and he shifted from Atlantic to Cover/Ichiban. He released a fresh recording, Incognito, in 1994 with companions DJ Tat Cash and A-Sharp.
